9 Best Chanel Perfumes in Singapore
Anyone who knows perfume, knows Chanel No. 5 to be the most iconic and timeless perfume in the world. Launched almost 90 years ago with Marilyn Monroe as its muse, it has since become the perfect representation of a “woman’s scent”, from its fresh floral smell to its classic feminine bottle. Underneath is a floral aldehydic blend of rose, ylang-ylang, jasmine, lily of the valley and iris, complemented by a woody base of vetiver, sandalwood, vanilla, amber and patchouli. It is said to have revolutionized the perfumery craft because of its absence of dominant notes, instead characterized by a well-balanced opulent feast for the senses. The floral-fresh-powdery-earthy scent is an extra boost of femininity for any woman.
This fresh and feminine perfume is best for special evenings and occasions.
Launched in 2016, this next perfume, or EDT, is a new take on the original No. 5, blending its iconic scents of ylang-ylang, jasmine and white musk with bright, citrus notes. The result is another fresh and feminine must-have for the modern-day woman. It was created for the younger generation of empowered Chanel women.
This bright and pleasant perfume is best for a night out in the city.
The Chanel No. 19 is said to have been created specially for Coco Chanel and was even named to memorialize her birthday, August 19. As expected from its green colour, it is notable for its fresh green, earthy and powdery notes mixed with the sweetness of white florals. Although it was launched 50 years ago, it still remains to be one of Chanel’s most-acclaimed fragrances, proving just how classic their perfumes are.
This green and powdery perfume is ideally worn for formal events.
Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle was fittingly named as a tribute to Coco Chanel’s as a style icon and advocate of strong women. Co-created by Karl Lagerfeld and Jacques Polges, it was inspired by her personality, evident in this bold and energetic perfume. It is a unique concoction of elegant floral scents of jasmine and rose with oriental woody notes of patchouli and vetiver, for an over-all spirited and sophisticated fragrance. Since it’s launch in 2001, it has been a best-seller especially among younger women.
This oriental floral perfume is good for evening wear and special affairs.
Chanel’s Chance is its only perfume line presented in a round bottle, perhaps to symbolize a “wheel” of surprising scents, which is exactly what it gives. With top notes of pink pepper, lemon and pineapple, it brings about instant freshness to the senses. This is complemented by beautiful floral scents from its heart notes of hyacinth jasmine and iris, layered on top of the powdery warmth of amber, patchouli, vetiver and white musk. It literally smells like a dream.
Chanel Chance Eau Vive Eau De Toilette Spray is another fragrance under the Chance line that I also personally love because of its fruity freshness on top of the florals.
The complex and delightful blend of this perfume makes it perfect for all kinds of occasions and seasons, whether day or night, spring or summer.
Next on the list is one of Chanel’s latest launches in 2019, created by Olivier Polge who continued in the footsteps of his father, Jacques Polge, Chanel’s head perfumer until 2015. Around notes of jasmine, ylang-ylang and orange flower is the Grasse tuberose, a unique flower with an intoxicating floral musk scent. Delicate yet intense, this scent was named after Coco Chanel’s real name, Gabrielle, to represent the modern-day woman who is fierce, confident and a revolutionary trendsetter, much like Coco Chanel herself.
This intense and feminine perfume is ideal for evening occasions, but would also be good for special daytime events.
Compared to the previous floral musky perfumes in this list, Coco Noir is a sensual, rich fragrance clad in an luxurious black box as an ode to another part of Coco Chanel’s vivacious lifestyle. Known for her black statement pieces at a time when black was fashion taboo, this perfume is an embodiment of Coco Chanel’s courage to be different. At the heart of this fragrance is tonka bean and bergamot, giving off an oriental and seductive scent.
This rich and sensual scent is great for date nights and formal events.
Allure is a pleasant treat for the senses with its fruity-floral-musky portfolio that always give me happy memories of spring afternoons and tropical days. Citrus notes of lemon, bergamot, orange, passion fruit and peach first greet the senses, which soon develop into warm floral notes of rose, peony, honeysuckle, freesia and magnolia. At its base are patchouli, amber, vanilla and sandalwood, keeping the fragrance warm and calming.
I personally love wearing this warm and sweet fragrance during the holidays.
We can’t end this list without forgetting about you men. This one’s for you. The Allure Pour Homme was launched in 1999 and instantly became a cult-favourite. It opens smelling the sea with aldehydic and citrus notes. You’ll then start to notice warm and woody notes of cedar, vanilla, tonka bean, white musk and amber. With this perfect blend, it produces a perfect masculine blend of freshness and sensuality. Leave it to Chanel to do a sports fragrance in style.
This fresh and woody scent is great for special occasions, whether formal or smart casual.
